Herbal Tea for energy
This is a recipe for healing energy boosting herbal tea from the photographer and culinary expert Kristina Podrezova. This drink will make a good alternative to your morning coffee, as well as a perfect option for warming yourself on one of those rainy or cold days. On her hike around Norway Kristina has been making this tea on campfires. It will come out just as good when home-brewed in a tea pot on a stove! We just don’t recommend to make it late at night, not to risk staying up all night.
